Louis Jadot 2002 Chambertin Clos de Bèze Pinot Noir (Gevrey-Chambertin)

  1. $140

This is one of the great Burgundies of 2002. It shows the power of the year, with huge black fruits and dense tannins. But it also shows the charm, with ripeness that promises a precocious development as well as long aging.

Louis Jadot 2005 Clos Saint-Jacques Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Gevrey-Chambertin)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $125

Beautiful, aromatic wine, with raspberry fruit floating above the spice and toast. This is shot through with acidity and some dense tannins, but above all it is the piercing fruit that dominates. One of Jadot’s signature wines, it is wonderful, with considerable aging potential.

Roche de Bellene 2010 Champeaux Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Gevrey-Chambertin)

  1. $92

New wood aromas dominate this powerful wine, which shows how much time it needs to age. It also has concentrated, juicy black-cherry and plum flavors and lovely acidity. This wine is made from fruit sourced from a two-acre parcel in the Champeaux premier cru.

Domaine Bruno Clair 2010 Clos Saint-Jacques Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Gevrey-Chambertin)

  • Cellar Selection

Made from fruit sourced from one of the finest premier crus in Gevrey-Chambertin, this is a closed wine initially. Then its rich black-fruit flavors explode, yet the wine still retains its serious, tannic character. The structure promises that this complex bottling will age well.

With entrancing smoky aromas, this is a ripe, intense and powerful wine. The tannins are dry, contrasting with the black fruit-juice flavors, black chocolate and a dry final taste. For long-term aging.

Louis Jadot 2012 Lavaux Saint-Jacques Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Gevrey-Chambertin)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $150

Situated at the entrance to a break in the hillside of the Côte d’Or, allowing cool air to come in from the west, Lavaux Saint-Jacques produces severely structured wines that need aging. This prime example shows the solid, dense structure and the powerful tannins that dominate the wine. Underneath, the opulent black fruits promise aging. Drink from 2020.

Domaine Rossignol-Trapet 2011 Petite Chapelle Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Gevrey-Chambertin)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $97

From vines just below the line of Grand Cru vineyards, this is a big and powerful expression of Pinot Noir. It is dense with firm tannins that are embedded in the ripe black fruits. It’s a complex wine, serious while still fruity, and needing to age. Drink from 2018.
